What's got you most excited from Toy Fair so far? The DST Star Trek stuff looks pretty awesome.

The Classic Blue Batman from the JLA box set. This is scary close to the Neal Adams look we have asked DCD for.
There are a few busts also that are screaming to be had.
Green Arrow, Aquaman bust, DCU Green Arrow and BC.

Yeah, I am very excited about the Aquaman and Mera busts. Here's hoping Mera makes it into the 6" line somewhere. I really can't see why DCD has never given an Aquaman line a go, as I think at least 1 strong wave of it would sell very well.

I need to see better pics of that Batman - any links?

And I agree - DCD Black Canary looks like a star.

That about sums it up for me!   Grin  I'm really pleased with that figure and don't really mind the others too much.  Curious to see how they alll come out.  The wave 9 DCUCers have me stoked as well, and I'm glad they gave Ollie extra articulation in the wrists!

Andy, here's a pretty good shot of Bats:

Thanks Xander. Embedding it here for all to see:



If that is the recent JLA Bats with classic colouring that could be a real winner, as that Bats is one of my faves.

Looks like Wondy's flesh colouring is better than the original too.

Shame I'd have to buy that dreadful GL sculpt to get them!

I'm all about that Batman, too.

Wish they'd tool out that horrific S Symbol in Superman's belt, though.  That's just retarded.

And has anyone seen the repainted DKR boxed set?  THIS is how Batman SHOULD have looked when they first released it.
